Captain Jonathan Archer: I had an argument once with Captain Jefferies. He was one of the designers of the NX-Class.
Captain Erika Hernandez: I'm aware of that.
Captain Jonathan Archer: I told him I didn't want to be in command of a warship trying to make first contact with new species. Jefferies was right. We needed those weapons. And a hell of a lot more.

They Don't Understand!
28 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

If you've ever done something that was emotionally and physically involving and suffered greatly to achieve an end and succeeded, only to return to your previous life, you can appreciate this episode. There is no way the earth people and the Vulcans can begin to appreciate the gravity of such accomplishments. There are two things at work. First of all, there is the adulation and hero worship from the fickle public. Secondly, there is xenophobia and bigotry, directed at anyone who does not fit the status quo. Archer is reeling from having to be a person he never imagined in order to fulfill his mission. He had to sell out his morality at times. He had to kill. T'Pol loves Trip but Vulcans have their own rules and traditions and he is out of place on their planet. It is here that the realities become so overwhelming. I thought this was a good, necessary episode, even if there was no combat or special effects to dominate the screen.
